Evangeline Lilly opens up about Hope’s relationship with her mother

Evangeline Lily returns for a fourth time as Hope van Dyne/The Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Ahead of the sequel, he spoke to Hyper Omelete at the CCXP event in Brazil about what fans can expect from his character as he reunites with his mother, Janet – formerly The Wasp – played by Michael Pfeiffer.

Hope’s volatile relationship with her father, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is clearly stated in the original The ant man from 2015, when his tragic past was revealed. Hope grows up believing that Janet, while on a mission with Hank, was killed because she sacrificed herself to succeed in their mission, and resents her father for her role in it.

But, 2018 Ant-Man and the Wasp built on signs left in the height of The ant man to reveal that Janet is still alive, and she was successfully extracted from her thirty years in the Quantum Realm before being reunited with her family – for a while, until she was banished by Thanos. It’s just bad timing. Fortunately, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) helped the Avengers restore the universe, and Lilly explained her character’s state of mind to finally pursue her long-awaited reunion with her mother.

Lilly revealed that despite their emotional reunion, their relationship will face some obstacles, saying:

“So of course Hope is very excited to have her mom back. And he thought, this will be a fantasy, and I will have my mom, and we will be best friends and we will tell each other everything and life will be intimate and my life will be perfect. And life is never perfect, especially for our parents. Especially for parents who have spent thirty years in the quantum realm. And so there was a lot Hope didn’t know and knew about her mother until this journey began. And it’s a dark and difficult thing for him to face.

Family has always played an important role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially in the The ant man trilogy. Scott’s relationship with his daughter Cassie (played this season by Catherine Newton), and his ex-wife along with her new husband, became the mainstays of the franchise. Cassie’s unwavering pride in her “superhero” father often gets Scott out of tough spots, and she draws strength from him to keep going.

Quantum will finally offer Hope the opportunity to work with her whole family, while Pfeiffer advances to a starring role in the film, which allows Hope to restore her relationship with her mother, but continue to heals a broken relationship with his father, while juggling the threat of the looming Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors).
